Can someone identify this bug?

My neighbor's outdoor patio is attracting the attached bug type each night. There are many of them and they are dead in the morning, I would guess due to the bug spray that she has put down. Can anyone identify this insect?

Thanks.

I googled "insects that look like shrimp" and found this:
https://biology.stackexchange.com/qu...pear-overnight

They seem to be "scud".

I don't know if I should pass that along to a 75 year old widow that lives alone and is OCD.

I thought everything is bigger in Texas. Looks like these critters are starving.
